Guru’s Nephew Issues Video Claiming Family Has been Cut Off from Contact

Justin Elam Guru's nephewThis is a sad state of affairs…earlier today we got word that Guru had issued an official statement to it read as follows..

“I am doing fine and I am recovering! I’m weak though,” Guru told in a statement today. “Solar is the only person who has the accurate info on my situation. Any info from anybody else is false! I appreciate your well wishes and all the love!”

Guru and his family are asking for privacy as he recovers and stressed for fans to continue to send prayers, thoughts and love.

His partner Solar echoed Guru’s comments about the need for privacy but told fans the outlook is positive for the rapper.

Additionally, only Solar will have access to Guru and accurate information regarding the status of his health.

“Guru is resting and doing well after his surgery,” Solar told “The doctors say that he will fully recover from his illness. We thank everyone who send prayers our way and we appreciate the outpouring of love from around the world!”

Solar can be reached by contacting a representative for his publicity firm,

Later that morning Questlove of the Roots issued this statement

i really hope that whoever has guru’s ear isn’t misrepresenting any information to him. im sure guru means the false rumors of his death (“any info….”) and isn’t trying to further fan the flames of his longtime feud with dj premiere. i’m sure he’s not aware of the love and concern that not only primo has for him and his condition but basically ALL the gangstarr family has for him (us gangstarr fans too)

anywho. i hope they aint 60 before they decide to get it together.

Guru and Super producer Solar

Earlier today DJ Premier posted up a heartfelt message from Guru’s nephew Justin who explained that the entire family has been cut off from Guru by his partner of the past 6 years-Solar..According to this video.. Solar has final say so over all of Guru’s affairs..To say the least this is wild.. I’m glad Guru is better..we’ll let the family sort all this out..
